PREFACE. 



Volume VIII of the series of manuscript books of public rec- 
ords deposited in the state archives at Alfred is of the same quality 
in manufacture as those used next preceding, and it was opened 
July 7, 1713 — the same day volume VII was closed. A very few 
of its first leaves are detached and the bottom ends considerably 
worn. Folios numbered fifty-six, seven, eight and nine, furnish 
an evidence of much study of the record thereon contained, re- 
lating to land titles at the place now known as Brunswick and 
vicinity; otherwise the volume is in an excellent state of preser- 
vation, considering the long time it has been in use. The first 
page is inscribed thus : 

The Eight Book of Deeds &c l for 
The County of York — 
1713 

Joseph Hammond, Register, 
cost 40 d II $6.66 cents. 

The Joseph Hammond here represented was the immediate 
successor as register and only son at the time of the death of his 
father, Joseph Hammond, of whose personal history considerable 
has been recorded in the Introduction to a former book of 
the copies of the Deeds. The Probate Court records show that 
he was possessed of a comparatively large worldly estate consid- 
ering the time in which he lived, and on one of the pages of the 
probate records I find an entry of which the following is a copy : 

Joseph Hammond, Esq., Judge of Probate of Wills and granting ad- 
ministration within the County of York, died Feb. 20, 1700 -10. 

And 

Joseph Hammond, late of Kittery, letter of adm granted his son, 24 
July, 1710. 

The will of Charles Frost represents him as his son-in-law, and 
other records as well as the York Deeds make a similar exhibit. 
From the inventory on file at Alfred of his estate may be ob- 
tained the number of rooms of his dwelling, their furnishings and 
value placed upon each article thereof. 



6 PREFACE. 

The pages of volume VIII of the Deeds, copied, printed and 
herewith presented to the public were inscribed by the hand of 
Joseph Hammond, who succeeded his father Joseph, and the book 
closed January 7, 1717, he continuing in office as register till 1721, 
making his last entry April 3, of that year. On the 17th of April, 
1739, Joseph Hammond was appointed to administer on the es- 
tate of his mother, deceased, and on April 2, 1753, his own w T ill 
was probated, a copy of which appears in the book entitled 
"Maine Wills," published by Sargent in 1887, which shows he had 
four sons all domiciled on his landed estate in Kittery, and three 
daughters, all of whom had married. One provision of the will 
reads : 

I give and bequeath unto Six Bearers, two Overseers, and the Rev. Mr. 
Josiah Chase each a Ring of Gold and a pair of Gloves, and to the Bear- 
ers of Mr. Chase's Wives. 

Nine rings were purchased by the administrator for which £6 : 
1 : 1| was paid. 

The work of copying the original manuscript for the type- 
setter, the proaf-reader and indexer, has been performed with a 
determination equal to if not in excess of all former efforts to | 
make this volume of the series as correct in every particular as 
the volumes preceding it. I visited Alfred while the work of 
copying was going on and failed to find anything needing correc- 
tion or suggestive of change in adopted methods of procedure, 
and have examined from time to time the operations at the print- 
ing house of the Brown Thurston Company, and in no instance 
have I discovered the slightest inclination by any one to shrink 
from rigid and persistent demands for the most perfect correct- 
ness obtainable. 

The historical information this volume contains appears to me 
to be in excess of all others of the series. Covering as it does, a 
larger field of territory, the information volume VIII contains is 
of a more general character. 

A record of the authorizing of the publication hereof and my I 
connection with the matter may be found in the Preface to the 
printed volume numbered VII. 

Leonard B. Chapman.
